This is funny. While speaking to a group of sympathetic protesters, Elizabeth Warren was rattling off groups of people that lack political power. And the crowd had to remind her about Native Americans.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Elizabeth Warren prodded by protesters to list Native Americans among ‘people who don’t have power’
Protesters had to remind Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., not to overlook Native Americans as she listed groups of people she claims lack power in politics.
“I am angry because of everyone who has lost power,” Warren said at a Thursday demonstration against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, D.C.
Warren, a possible 2020 Democratic presidential contender, evoked African-Americans, Latinos, and members of the LGBTQ community as examples before some people in the crowd shouted out “Native Americans.”
“Students, seniors, Native Americans: over and over people who don’t have power,” she said. “Our democracy has been hijacked by the powerful who don’t plan to share it. So yes, I am angry, but let me make it clear, I have a plan.”
In 1996, Harvard Law School touted Warren, then a professor there, as being “Native American.” They singled her out, Warren later acknowledged, because she had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory.
Isn’t she supposed to be some kind of authority on that subject?
